Palo Alto Solutions to Set Up Engineering Office in Bengaluru

Network security solutions provider Palo Alto Networks has signed a lease for an engineering office in Bengaluru, in what would be one of the largest office space deals in the country amid the second Covid-19 wave. The 150,000-sq ft office space will come up in Bagmane Tech Park, they said, adding that the property is under fit-out right now and will be operational by the end of this year.

"The US-based firm will pay a rent of Rs 95 per sq ft and will occupy it in two phases," they said. It will be the cybersecurity company’s second engineering office outside the US. The other is in Israel.

Palo Alto Networks could not be reached immediately for comment. The deal comes at a time when the country’s commercial real estate sector is facing significant headwinds, with the second Covid-19 wave weighing heavily on office space absorption.

The uncertainty over business outlook amid a resurgence of Covid-19 infections has resulted in office occupiers postponing their decisions to expand their portfolio.
